Rocketry golf takes off:

“The Rocketry Golf Organization (RGO) Aimed its First Contest with Golf Pro, Shawn Kelly, vs. Doug Frost, at The Ridge Golf Course, Auburn, Ca., March 19 and 26, 2013

Rockets with plastic golf balls, replace driver clubs, as they fly to the green no matter how far. Shawn Kelly, golf pro, will compete against these rocket machines. Doug Frost, rocketry golfer, will have to putt out with a real golf ball and club.” -PRNewswire


For the pointer I thank the apparently excellent Brett Keller.

This would make a great M.E. senior design project. Rather than finishing up with a putter, use a hamster ball with a robot hamster to hit the flag stick. Bonus points if it is small enough to get into the hole.

They should have called it “Rocket Golf.” Everything is better with “Rocket” before it. Even things you would normally hate become cool. “Rocket Congress,” “rocket rectal exam,” “rocket root canal,” “rocket spam.”

Bonus points: buy some surplus JDAM kits for a hole in one.
